Abstract: We have developed a preliminary learning support system for zoos where children can learn about the ecologies of animals while moving their bodies. For children, the zoo is a place of learning, where they can observe live animals carefully and learn about ecology. However, some animals are exceptionally difficult to observe carefully, and the observers may find it challenging to learn in such scenarios. Therefore, in this research, we developed a learning support system that efficiently acquires knowledge about the ecologies of animals that are difficult to observe in zoos. This system uses a sensor to measure the body movements of the learner; certain animals also tend to respond based on these movements. By doing so, live animals can be carefully observed virtually, and ecological learning is achieved via touch. In this work, we describe the results of evaluating the usefulness of the current system by developing a prototype and evaluating experiments as the first step towards reali zing a learning support system to achieve ecological learning of animal observations in zoos.
